Quitting Your Job with No Plan B

Meet Tess Vigeland, author of Leap: Leaving a Job with No Plan B to Find the Career and Life You Really Want, who discusses what really happens when you leave a high-status job without the next steps lined up. Tess doesn’t hold back as she discusses what pushed her to leave her job at Public Radio’s Marketplace, the emptional rabbit hols she went down months after, how she landed a book deal, and the warning signs that might mean it’s time to quit your job. Additionally, Tess and I discuss our society’s attachment to our job titles and why asking, “What do you do?” should be removed from conversation starters from now on.

“I Saved $100,000 in 3.5 Years on $54,000 Salary—Here's How”

Meet Bola Sokunbi the founder of Clever Girl Finance as well as the author of a newly released book by that same name. Bola’s a financial force but her story didn’t start like that. Today, her site gives financial advice and teaches financial literacy to millions of women each year, but less than a few years ago, Bola was making $54,000 a year and working toward a goal to become debt-free—and save more than $100,000. Spoiler alert she hit that goal and she’s sharing how she did it plus, I’m asking her some popular money questions like how much should you have in your emergency fund, which debt should you pay down first, and how can you invest when you don’t have a lot of extra income.

The Art of Asking Questions for Career Success

Meet Annabel Chang, Vice President Bay Area for Alaska Airlines, and a woman who’s had a winding career path including law school, a tech startup and now at the 5th largest U.S. airline. Annabel’s career has included some tough questions that many of us do and will face in our careers like, “What do I want to do next?” and “I want more but I’m not sure how to get there.” Walking away from a prestigious job in the search for something new while not letting your confidence take a major hit was just the tip of the courageous iceberg that Annabel navigated. The episode will also explore why asking questions can build confidence, how Annabel landed her job via LinkedIn, the importance of elevator pitches, and how to act in the first 100 days of a job.

Navigating The Highs + Lows of Life with the Founders of Shine

Meet Marah Lidey + Naomi Hirabayashi, the founders of Shine, a digital self-care platform that gives you access to a daily motivational text, community, articles, and more. Marah and Naomi started Shine with the promise to offer users the same support they found in each other as friends and to help you feel more seen, heard, and represented in the world of self-care. And just a few years later with millions of users, they’ve definitely kept their promise. But we didn’t bring them on the show to only talk about business—we want to know how the busy founders manage their own highs and lows and how they apply their self-care learnings to their lives, families, and work culture. Plus, Caileen and Lauren will be answering tough questions at the end of the show starting with job burnout and the last time Lauren left her comfort zone.

Meet Veronica Rueckert, former host at Wisconsin Public Radio, trained opera singer, and communications coach. She’s also the new author of Outspoken: Why Women’s Voices Get Silenced. Veronica’s research led to some pretty sobering facts and some you might not be shocked by like the fact that women’s voices aren’t being heard—at work, at home, in public, and in every facet of their lives. In this episode, you’ll learn how to recognize the value of your voices and tap into your inherent power, potential, and capacity for self-expression. We’ll also discuss how to address people who interrupt you, pitching ideas to your boss, and contrary to popular belief, why it’s totally ok to change your voice.

Are You Actually Healthy? Find Out for Sure with Dr. Berzin.

Meet Dr. Robin Berzin a functional medicine doctor and the founder of Parsley Health. Dr. Robin founded the company in 2015 because she saw a flaw in the American medical system, which primarily focuses on prescriptions and procedures, not preventative care. About 90% of diseases are related to social determinants–your environment and your behavior. At Parsley, Dr. Robin’s team of traditionally trained doctors work with members, who pay a monthly subscription fee of $150 to understand what is going on in their lives that might be impacting their health. And as Dr. Robin shares in this episode, your health is all about how you feel—not how you look so you really need to listen to your body. We’ll also cover how Dr. Robin fundraised while 9 months pregnant, hormones, sleep, the physical Parsley clinics like the new one that just opened in LA, and so much more. Plus, you can save $400 when you join Parsley’s West Hollywood location with promo code LAFM. Links below! CareerContessa...
